I would like to start out by saying a verse from Genesis 1:29-30 "And God said, behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to everything that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so." This verse from the bible has a powerful, but simple meaning; all herbs shall be taken in to our body as the meat for healing. I not only believe in herbs because it is said in the bible, but because herbal medicine has the power to prevent & heal. Why?, well, its quite simple really, our bodies are organic, so, why would you want to take in something that's inorganic, would it not be wiser to allow the body to heal with organic products. That's exactly what you are doing when taking pain relievers, heparin, and antihypertensive medications just to name a few. In herbal medicine, the patient is empowered, and since herbs are certainly more convenient, without prescriptions or limitations, more patients can enjoy their benefits. The benefits which I'm speaking of is the ability to prevent & heal. Let's take cardiovascular disease for example, which just happens to be the leading cause of death in the U.S., and according to Dr. David Vastola in his book To your good health, he wrote out a section with a natural alternative for CAD and hypertension, how, well he says by taking in Omega 3, L-Carnitine, and Coenzyme Q10, that these 3 things can help a person to cope with CAD, and as for hypertension all they have to do is either to take Coenzyme Q10 or Hawthorne. Have we all here heard one time or another that ulcers are cause by stress, well, the NIH said that ulcers are caused by the helicobacterpylori bacteria, not by stress, and the NIH said that they can be "cured" with a combination...
